This basic vegetarian and vegan gravy recipe uses fresh herbs, including sage and parsley, to get lots of flavor. You'll need a good gravy to go with a vegetarian or vegan lentil loaf recipe, mashed potatoes and of course, with Tofurky on your vegetarian Thanksgiving!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups broth (vegetable)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley (fresh, minced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage (fresh, minced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch (dissolved in 2 tablespoons water)
  • Optional: 2 teaspoons yeast (nutritional)
